The omnibus: Bleeding us dry. Lying to our faces. Killing our country.

It’s $1.1 trillion dollars.  It’s 2009 pages.  It was written by FOUR lawmakers and a bunch of lobbyists.   Politicians like Renee Ellmers want to sell it as a great “tax cut”’ package.  (But there are credits, not cuts. And ObamaCare-related taxes are postponed a…

It’s not easy being ORANGE

Boehner talks tough on Meadows move (but WHY no vote yet?)

#ncpol: Meet the chairman of the House Committee on BIG Cojones

There he goes again, showing his colleagues how to behave like a conservative.  One has to wonder how long it will take for Patrick McHenry (R-NC-10) to run whining to the drivebys about his neighbor in the 11th, Mark Meadows?    Will Thom Tillis scold him…

A potential monkey wrench in the Draft Meadows effort?

Congressman Mark Meadows collected a lot of new fans with his recent tussle with John Boehner and crew.  An effort has arisen to encourage Meadows to forego election to the House in 2016 and primary incumbent US senator Richard Burr. Well, certain developments in DC…

Conservative Review: Grades of F for Tillis AND Burr (Eight of 13 House members FAIL)
